    Join Professor Rangi Matamua, a lecturer in the Faculty of Māori and Indigenous Studies at Waikato University, and Greta Dromgool from the Science Learning Hub as we share ways to incorporate te reo Māori alongside teaching science.

    The importance of te reo Māori in the classroom is highlighted in our teaching standards and government education strategies.

    Acknowledging we will all be at different stages in our journey with te reo Māori, we share quality resources and teaching strategies adaptable to a range of contexts.

    I enjoyed listening to the webinar ... and am keen to explore many of the resources that were mentioned.
